Local Wal-Mart has closed fabric dept.(ARGHHH! I guess I didn't shop there enough to keep them in business!)
Anyway- I bought a new cutting mat- 24 x 36, pink. I needed a new one desperately. Problem is- it STINKS to high heaven. Like faint smell of skunk.
It's been 2 weeks of sitting on my cutting table and it still smells- I smell it as soon as I come up the stairs.
I don't want to cut on it in case the smell goes into the fabric. Any ideas on how to get rid of the smell? Anything I can rub into it- alcohol?- without removing the lines?
Thanks for your help!
P.S. My old self healing one is 20 years old- I was thinking about it- I've had it before I quilted, wonder what possessed me to buy one so long ago? But, the lines are so deep into it, I don't know if they are accurate anymore so I figured a new and larger one was necessary.
